We had a great time. The aquarium has had a big over haul since I was there last. The penguin encounter is fantastic. I love how close you can get. The turtle rescue is brilliant and we were really lucky to see three different species present. The tunnels through the main aquarium tanks were great too. The best bit... The kids area. As a dad to young kids this was great. They can colour in a fish, scan it and then see it come to life and swim around the wall. There's a soft play jungle gym to run off some steam, conveniently next to the cafe and about mid way through. Its great. Yes, it costs, but I think it was well worth it.
Aquarium is little but nice. It is great for children. I have an annual pass, this is our second year holding an annual pass and my little one and I love it. There is always something new. There is cafe and playground inside. They only negative is that they should do maintenance more often. As a lot of interactive Attractions usually don't work properly.
I didn't really have high hopes for this place but I was so surprised at how amazing, fun an interactive it was, the penguin enclosure was just magnificent I could sit and watch those penguin for hours. They have talks throughout, a little playground for the kids and a cafe, and my favourite part, you colour in this piece of paper with a fish on it then scan it into the big screen. AMAZING!
This place is extremely well done. Many varieties of fish all from the local NZ and surrounding area waters. The have moving walkways that go through the tanks as you are in a huge long tube where the fish swim on either side of you and above you. Also many smaller tanks with interesting sea creatures.
Wonderful place to leave your money to save the planet...starting with the ocean. I had so much fun in ALL of the different areas. My sister loved the sea horses. I was impressed with the large red lobster. Even better was the artifacts and history in the beginning of the exhibit. I cannot say enough good about it!
